Agrarian social movements and forms of consciousness

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Combines discussion of contemporary developments with a retrospective historical view in order to offer a critical examination of some of the theoretical and political tendencies which are emerging from the "New Social Movements' literature. Begins by recognising that part of the impetus towards what is rapidly becoming a "social movements industry' in academia has come from intellectual tendencies within advanced capitalist societies, despite the fact that one of the leading exponents of the self-styled "post-Marxist' view of social movements in Europe, Ernesto Laclau, happens to be of Latin American origin. -from Author
